Sarah Bruch's research focuses on the processes and policies that ameliorate or exacerbate social inequalities. In this vein, she studies the political and civic consequences of social policy designs; the distributional and social consequences of US safety net policies; the role of racial marginality in state policy choices; authority relations and racial dynamics within schools; and how multiple dimensions of race can be used to identify different mechanisms of racial disparities in education and punishment.    

Her research and teaching interests include social stratification; race and ethnicity; social policy and politics; sociology of education; education policy; quantitative methods; and political sociology.
